Seniors Health Knowledge Network [SHKN]

SHKN’s goal is to improve quality of life for Ontario’s seniors and caregivers. This is achieved through sharing evidence-based care practices within all seniors’ health care venues, particularly among long-term and community care staff; and through informing policy development for service providers, care settings, and knowledge users.

We've facilitated knowledge sharing on topics related to Ontario’s seniors health care since 2005. SHKN includes individuals, organizations, care providers, practitioners, educators, students, researchers and policy makers who connect and collaborate across settings and disciplines to develop, evaluate and share knowledge to inform better client and caregiver outcomes.

Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of practitioners, caregivers, policymakers, researchers, healthcare administrators, educators and leaders who come together to exchange information on a topic related to seniors health. Community groups are commited to supporting and learn from one another to develop new knowledge and applied practice.
